    When I dont use detergent, I dont get the leaks at the door. When I do, I get the leaks. Its the right detergent, been using it for years. I checked the detergent door from the inside of the front door cover. I found the leakage coming from the detergent box. Detergent and water is leaking inside the door cover and onto the floor. Will it hurt to use a water proof caulk to seal the detergent box?

1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.

Leaking door


Open the door and look inside at the lower left corner where the door gasket ends. See if there is any type of obstruction or foreign object in that corner. It doesn't take much to cause a door leak. Some door latches can be adjusted tighter. Look at the top door latch system and see if has 2 screws in it. You can sometimes loosen the screws and push the latch inward slightly and re-tighten the screws. That will make the door tighter when latched. Not all dishwashers have adjustable latch systems.

Check to see if the door baffles are intact they are little black rubber things in the front on each side of the tub. the pump seal could be leaking underneath. the wrong detergent (dishwashing detergent) could have been used.

Float switch dripping water onto floor while dishwaser running


You will find that the flood switch will be operating due to the leak, it will most likely be from one of 2 places:
1. Around the door seal, Give it a clean and check for splits/damage, and make sure screws on door hinges are tight.
2. Check the rollers that screw onto the inside of the dishwasher cabinet, The screws on these can come loose and cause water to run down into the base, check they are tight.
Hopefully this helps.

Whirlpool dishwasher leaks


Just about all dishwashers will leak a little around the door seal over time but should not leak to the point of wetting the floor. With the door open, check in the front of the tub, under the door. Lots of gunk? Clean this area out well plus take a soft damp rag and clean the door gasket while feeling for any damage. Then go along the mating surface of the door and look for any nicks. If it leaked all the time I would suspect the door hinges have been sprung. Hope this helps, Ken

Step1
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. 
Step
2
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary. 
Step
3
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet. 
Step
4
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement. 
Step
5
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.
